The beginnings of an interdisciplinary study of synaesthesia: discussions about the Nussbaumer brothers (1873)
Day, Sean A
- Publisher: Uniwersytet Mikołaja Kopernika w Toruniu
In the context of synaesthesia research, the discussion about the Nussbaumer brothers today is totally forgotten. Two articles were published by one of these brothers in 1873 with self-observations about their synaesthesia and a 19-section questionnaire – the first questionnaire in the history of this phenomenon. What was new about their synaesthesia? How was it received? In which interdisciplinary contexts was synaesthesia placed? Which new theories were developed via the Nussbaumer discussion? We answer these questions and also resolve for the first time the true identity of F. A. Nussbaumer.
